The Ontario-owned and bred pacing mare Rock N Roll Xample parlayed the pocket ride to victory in Friday’s (July 1) feature at Saratoga Casino Hotel.

Billy Dobson piloted the Rene Allard-trained mare in the $15,000 Fillies and Mares Open and got a two-hole trip for five-year-old distaffer. Rock N Roll Xample rode the coattails of front-running rival Bettorhaveanother (Frank Coppola Jr.) throughout before cruising up the passing lane to win in 1:54.1 over a sloppy track. Godiva Seelster (Wally Hennessey), the race’s even-money favourite, came from last in the six-horse Open before getting up to finish second. Bettorhaveanother earned the show spot.

Rock N Roll Xample, who was the race’s 9-5 second choice in the wagering, led an exacta and triple that returned $9.20 and $40.20, respectively.

The homebred daughter of Rocknroll Hanover is owned by Robert Hamather of Exeter, Ont.
